The French-mathematical red thread runs through the program of this Cantus Ensemble concert: Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun is one of the works considered the very beginning of contemporary music due to new "syntax" and new sound colors. It was premiered in Paris, just like the Octet by Igor Stravinsky, the beginning of the composer's change of direction towards neoclassicism. Iannis Xenakis has lived in Paris since he was 25 and learned from the French masters, including Messiaen, and brought his mathematical, architectural and engineering knowledge to music. Music and mathematics are an eternal couple, which in the 20th century turned to research of acoustics and electronic music. In Paris the center of research was the IRCAM center, which Croatian composer Davor Branimir Vincze also attended, acquiring knowledge on electronic music, whose latest composition for electronics and ensemble is premiered by Cantus Ensemble and Danijel Martinović as a soloist (clarinet). Music and mathematics also lead to the development of computer programs, such as those used by Srđan Dedić, whose composition was premiered by Cantus in 2016 and is returning to in this concert.
